What treatment do you use on your bird dog?

K9 Advantix II which was recommended by my Vet.

Also, my dog a GSP is very dark with short hair and fast moving at all times which helps.

Ticks move to white as the underbellies of most animals are white and a slow moving dog in the dense brush gives them a chance to get on.

I tend to hunt in Colliers Mills and Greenwood where controlled burns help to keep ticks & chiggers down.

And, after being afield I put my dog on the tailgate and thoroughly check her out and give her a good brushing.

Over 2 years hunting with her and only 3 ticks.

I thought, growing old would take longer !

Ive used k9 advantix and frontline in the past. But switched to biospot which is much cheaper and havent found anything since. With the first two i would find dead ticks that had bitten the dog. But it seams as though the biospot keeps them from even getting on the dog.

I used to use advantix, but my dog would itch for a week + after the application. 2x she laid down on my hardwood floors after a plying and the stuff dripped onto the floor and ate the finish right off it the floor! I decided that was not good for her skin. (Or my floors)
Now she gets the oral pil. Expensive, but whatever. .life is expensive.

I just use what my daughter recomends (she's a vet)  Bravacto  I'm in the woods year round training and tracking, I have found ticks on him but he has never been bitten so far. the first time I used it he had diarear  but no problems since he is now 3 years old.
